Hi Tom and Wendys,
Re: [tomaz] golden retriever breeder?
This is my first puppy. I bought it from a "breeder" in claasified advertisement. I paid RM1,700 for it. Being a first time buyer, I would advise you to be cautious. Don't buy from those people who advertised in the paper. Even the micro-chips and Certificate is a useless, it does not prove anything.
Turn out that my puppy is not so pure breed after all. Sudah kena CON. As the puppy grow older, than you will be able to see the difference. By then it will be too late. Malaysia do not have much law to protect consumer. (for dog nothing.) Some are cross bred with Lab Retriver etc., it is difficult for an expert to distinguish it during puppyhood, let alone a novice.
Mine puppy is MKA micro chiped and registered as GR, and now it is looking more and more like a mixed Lab. The puppy has developed a great attachment to me, that I love him nontheless.
So if it is your first time, do buy from a reputable breeder or pet shop. Some of the senior forum member will have more suggestion for you.
Wish you the Best.
A Dog is for Life, Not just for Christmas
